On July 30, 1971, the Apollo 15 lunar module Falcon passed over the 4000 m Apennine Mountain front and landed at one of the most geologically diverse sites selected in the Apollo program, the Hadley-Apennine region. Although this event occurred 14 years ago, its unique nature makes the site an important target of continued scientific investigation.
